COVID-19 and Online Learning Update:

Due to Ryerson's response to COVID-19, courses will be held online. RU Noted does not generally provide notes for online courses and so our note-takers will only be assigned for courses with a live-streamed component. 

Sign up to be a Peer Note-taker 

Use our online portal to sign up and share notes. You will be notified if you are assigned as a Peer Note-taker. Students require notes throughout the semester, so you can be assigned at any time.

Since you will not be uploading notes for courses where you are not selected, and therefore not fully participating in the peer-to-peer program, you will not receive funds; however, since many students request note-taking services throughout the semester, we encourage you to sign up for as many courses as you wish--you may be selected as a Peer Note-taker at any point during the course.
